Perhaps I'm lost in weeds of this code, but I thought the magic of error
message details for the threads was handled through rerr (and
virNetMessageSaveError).

Still, based on later patches which seem to care about the value of
errno, it interesting this one removes an errno setting and replaces it
with an error message.

Maybe the answer is rather than replacing threadErr it should be
'augmented' with a 'threadErrMsg'.

This seems fine - display the error that we got from some lower spot if
it exists; otherwise,

Might be important to note the saving of the error has a lot to do with
virStreamAbort's clearing.

At the very least this is an error in our processing vs. something
within the stream, correct? Or is that the thicket of weeds I'm lost in.

"Typically" the processing is:

    orig_err = virSaveLastError();
    { do stuff };
    if (orig_err) {
        virSetError(orig_err);
        virFreeError(orig_err);
    }

So, how do we know threadErr got something in return and if it didn't
we've messed up "other" algorithms. In particular, the lines in the
previous hunk won't set 'events' any more.

I'm not worried about being called twice (we know that won't happen
;-)), but spreading out the error message processing through 3 functions
causes me wonder whether that virFreeError should be done right after
the virSetError rather than waiting for virFDStreamDataDispose.
